Shia LaBeouf might claim he's not famous any more, but attention on him couldn't be higher.
At the Berlin film festival premiere of 'Nymphomaniac', he donned a brown paper bag over his head - the latest in a string of bizarre behaviour after being accused late last year of plagiarism.
His subsequent apology to that was reported to have been copied as well.
Following increasing criticism, Labeouf tweeted his retirement from public life at the beginning of January.
At a news conference earlier in the day, the actor - who also appeared to be missing a tooth - again copied someone else, this time an infamous line from football legend Eric Cantona.
SOUNDBITE: Actor, Shia Labeouf, saying (English):
"When the seagulls follow the trawler it is because they think sardines are going to be thrown in the sea. Thank you very much."
This reaction came after LaBeouf had been asked about the sex scenes in latest Lars Von Trier film, "Nymphomaniac".
Despite not showing his face on the red carpet, in the movie the Transformers star can be seen in all his glory, involved in provocative sex scenes with co-star Stacy Martin.
"Nympomaniac" Volume One goes on release in the UK on February 22.
